My Bosch Classixx dishwasher is using all the salt in one wash.Why and how do I resolve?
In order to rinse dishes and glasses satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft water, i.e. containing little or no lime, otherwise water stains will be left behind on crockery and glasses, etc. If the tap water exceeds a certain level of hardness, it must be softened, i.e. decalcified, so that it can be used in the dishwasher. his is achieved by adding a special salt to the water softener inside the dishwasher. The water softener, that is the required amount of salt, is set up according to how hard the tap water is.
Setting up the water softener
Determine the level of hardness of your tap water. Your local water company or service agent can help you with this. Identify setting from the following water hardness table.
Press and hold the B programme button, and set the main switch to ON, before releasing the programme button again.
The indicator lamp for the B button flashes, as does the figure in the numerical display. The latter represents the value that was preset in the factory.
To change the setting:
Press the B programme button.
Every time the button is pressed, the figure increases by one. After reaching 7 the display starts at 0 again.
Set the main switch OFF. The new setting is stored in the appliance’s memory.
Approx. 4 litres of water are required for regenerating the water softening system. The overall water consumption per load can therefore be increased by between 0 and a maximum of 4 litres according to the water hardness setting.
